I believe the Lord fired a warning shot across our bow with this virus...pestilence. I think He is beginning to count down the minutes till Jesus return.
Am working on a Sunday School to post on my church's FB page for this Sunday and we are studying the Lord's Prayer as recorded in Luke 11. In the Lord's Prayer we ask..."Give us day by day our daily bread." Luke 11:3 Hadn't realized it says "day by day"...always recited "give us this day"...
"Boast not thyself of to morrow; for thou knowest not what a day may bring forth." Proverbs 27:1
"Go to now, ye that say, To day or to morrow we will go into such a city, and continue there a year, and buy and sell, and get gain: Whereas ye know not what shall be on the morrow. For what is your life? It is even a vapour, that appeareth for a little time, and then vanisheth away. For that ye ought to say, If the Lord will, we shall live, and do this, or that." James 4:13-15
Therefore I say unto you, Take no thought for your life, what ye shall eat, or what ye shall drink; nor yet for your body, what ye shall put on. Is not the life more than meat, and the body than raiment? Behold the fowls of the air: for they sow not, neither do they reap, nor gather into barns; yet your heavenly Father feedeth them. Are ye not much better than they? Which of you by taking thought can add one cubit unto his stature? And why take ye thought for raiment? Consider the lilies of the field, how they grow; they toil not, neither do they spin: And yet I say unto you, That even Solomon in all his glory was not arrayed like one of these. Wherefore, if God so clothe the grass of the field, which to day is, and to morrow is cast into the oven, shall he not much more clothe you, O ye of little faith? Therefore take no thought, saying, What shall we eat? or, What shall we drink? or, Wherewithal shall we be clothed? (For after all these things do the Gentiles seek:) for your heavenly Father knoweth that ye have need of all these things. But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you. Take therefore no thought for the morrow: for the morrow shall take thought for the things of itself. Sufficient unto the day is the evil thereof." Matthew 6:25-34
So I ask the Lord today...for what I need today. Tomorrow may be the day the Lord comes. But we need that every day. "Take therefore no thought for the morrow: for the morrow shall take thought for the things of itself. Sufficient unto the day is the evil thereof." Matthew 6:34
So I pray for manna just for today...like the Hebrews in the wilderness...because like them we are on a journey, going home.
